The Gold Creek watershed is where our drinking water comes from. Try to remember to take your pets for their potty walks somwhere else.

Raising fares is the best way for Alaska Marine Highway to pay for its broken boats. I wonder if Alaska Airlines is next?

Let's use the Word of Mouth for interesting things. Democrats aren't going to change Republicans' minds and Republicans aren't going to change Democrats' minds. The helicopter owners who just want to make as much money as possible aren't going to change the people's minds who buy $200,000 homes, shop at all the local stores, lived in Juneau 20 years and just want a little peace and quiet. You're not going to change anyone's mind by calling Word of Mouth. Let's use Word of Mouth for interesting ideas and complimenting people.

Will the person or persons who took our Bible cases out of our car last Monday please return them to the Juneau Police Department? Have a heart and give them back.

You say the Empire subscription prices are being "adjusted." Would that be upward or downward?

That would be upward.

In this time of greatest darkness, parents please remember to put reflectors on children if they're going to be walking on the side of the road.

With all these Santas and Christmas trees in government office buildings, does anyone else wonder if people of religions other than Christian feel comfortable expressing their winter religious events?

I just saw 10 robins in our backyard. Just wondering if someone can shed light on what robins are doing flying around the Juneau area in December.

I don't drive down Douglas Highway without thinking of Marty Clements who was killed by a drunken driver a few years back. In the midst of the holidays, please think of the consequences of drinking and driving.

To Jim Collard: You write a good letter. I've lived in Juneau 25 years and know very well what the Christmas flights are for. There are other ways, though, to benefit the needy without disturbing the peace.

I want to thank the helicopter company for its kindness and generosity and tell them they can make noise in my neighborhood day or night, year-round, especially when they're working to raise money for neurofibromatosis.

Those who called about the helicopter noise should call back and apologize.

I'm a local Juneau resident attending a school outside of the state and I am very surprised about the complaints concerning noise pollution. This town has got to find something new to do besides complain about people trying to raise money for cancer.

This is a Sealaska shareholder and I just want to say "Merry Christmas" to everyone and "bah humbug" to the corporation because of its dividend and bonus policy.

Tony Knowles is leaving office with a huge debt. I feel he does not have Alaska's best interest. He has spent money on the Katy Johns case and lot of other court cases.

I found out that Marc Wheeler has been gone on a long vacation and as a taxpayer I'm paying him 500 bucks a month to be gone.
